They also upload quite a lot of clips from other shows.  Much better than my effort with AusGrindTube....

Grindhead Records Presents: East West Deathgrind Fest 6!!

Posted by mothereel

Blasterpieces represent!

It's here!  Christmas for those into extreme underground local talent has arrived.  Bubsy, who plays Santa in this metaphor, has done it again, or maybe he's gone done better than last year!  What a line-up!!

Showcasing a bunch of fools with instruments from a wide variety of towns and villages, this year's East West has bands from South Australia, a mighty contingent from Victoria, Queensland is represented and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.

Sydney's darlings, Ether Rag, are also launching their highly anticipated 7" so make sure you save a handful of post-beer coins to exchange for that sexy vinyl.  Grindhead Records will, of course, also have their distro with a fine selection of extreme music from around the world with maybe even a few choices being available for under $5!

I'm also playing, this time I'm filling the bass and vocals for those handsome Backpacker boys.  That should be interesting... hopefully.

Keep up to date with set times and other announcements by going to the facebook event page.

Cripple Bastards & Jig Ai in Sydney!

Posted by mothereel

BYO at a DIY!! Couldn't be more Grind if it tried!!

That other guy, who does most of the stuff of Grindhead Records*, has pulled this little beauty out.  For those of you who cant make OEF in Victoria this year, here's the alternative.

Cripple Bastards from Italy, first time in Australia.  Jig Ai from Czech Republic, I believe their first time in Australia.  Both want to impress, caress and distress you.  Both known for their past.  Both are looked to for the future.  I'm rambling.

The Sydney bands are smiled upon by many.  Ether Rag being hailed as the best the region has to offer in grind.  Dark Horse have been doing some great things with their D-Beat style as well.

It's one of those gigs.  Be there or cry about it later.

Here's the facebook event page.

*you know I co-run the label now, don't you?  Just thought I better mention it, in case I start blathering about how awesome a label it is and how it does all these great things for the scene and bands etc.  Potential bias and conflict of interest in reporting stuff.
